After making waves in the crypto currency world, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez (R-FL) has taken on a new project to turn Miami into a global tech hub.

The Floridian previously sat down with Mayor Suarez to discuss state and national politics, where he unveiled a deep interest in crypto currency.  Now, the South Florida Mayor has taken on "How Can I Help?" Which is a non-fungible token (NFT) collection as part of Mayor Suarez’s platform.

The one-of-a-kind unique collection is a set of 12 NFTs will be auctioned off through Open Sea from Tuesday, October 26 through Thursday November 4, 2021. In an effort to cultivate local, homegrown technology talent, 100 percent of the proceeds generated from the auction of these unique pieces of art, along with a 10 percent resale royalty, will be donated to Little Haiti Coding Boot Camp.

The “How Can I Help?” collection was inspired by a 2019 tweet response from the Miami Mayor when it was suggested that Silicon Valley move to Miami. When Mayor Suarez responded, “How can I help?”, the tweet went viral and served as the inspiration for the 12 unique NFT digital artworks.

Mayor Suarez has made national headlines since then in his efforts to transform the city into the world’s cryptocurrency innovation hub having played host to Miami’s first ever Crypto Conference in June of 2021 and successfully lured major investment and wealth management firms to relocate to Miami. Miami is now also the first municipality to accept cryptocurrency contributions through CityCoins.

Miami's technology development and staying ahead of the innovation curb is one of Mayor Suarez's biggest factors heading onto his re-election.  With Miami Coin and several projects in the works, Suarez seems positioned to possibly create jobs and see a swift re-election with Miami's adoption of crypto currencies.
